This is the 3rd time that the egg outside of the Art Store has been painted over.
The Egg is oval. However, when I used the Pano setting on my IPhone, it came out round. Go figure!
The top of the Egg was higher than me, and hard to capture. The Egg is about 6 feet tall. (1.83 M). The sun was high up, glaring upon the top of the Egg.
Still, an interesting challenge to capture it for us all.
This is a realistic side view of the Egg. Some may remember the first Egg I posted – Egg of Birdo
A car was blocking my ability to go all around the Egg, but the car was black & all clean and shiny. The next 4 reflections are lots of fun.

I’m partial to Eggs. I don’t eat them, but I do an interpretive dance called “The Egg Dance”. It was performed last at The Chicklets’ Poetry Party in April. Click on the pice to enjoy an encore performance!

Eggs are fascinating! They look like massive stones, have such a fragile shell. They seem to be dead objects – and carry so much interesting and lovely life in them…
I agree with you. They have life in them, and are a symbol for life to be.
Have a fab week ahead!
One of your best Resa, this artist is amazing. I love the surreal wall art, it’s just fantastic. Thank you for the great shots! ❤
The art is nice and different, and works well on the Egg!
I was thrilled when I realized the car blocking was clean and shiny.
Will be painting some poetry on my black door soon. Charlie Zero sent me a micro-poem. I’m going with white & pink. ❤ xx
That will be super! Love Charlies poems! 💞x
BTW Thanks for the Pingback!!! xoxo
Just finished a wonderful course on world mythology. One of the prominent motifs in the creation story is the world egg, cosmic egg or mundane egg. We are drawn to this shape from ancient times. Always a wonderful experience stopping by…
Ohhh, mythology! The egg is a meaningful symbol. I am drawn to it for sure! Glad you find neat things when you stop by!!!
This one is really well done. I love the snakes, of course. When something is blocking the views of your subject, figuring out how to work the object into the project can be a challenge, but you worked it out perfectly. The reflections are wonderful.
Thanks Timothy… about my photography! It is a fun piece to take pics of. Also, cars are quite often blocking the complete view. Main thing is this one was clean and shiny for those reflections.
You know, the whole Pano thing is blowing my mind.
The egg is oval.
Pano makes things more arced, even more ovulate.
Yet, it makes a globe out of an oval. Blown away!
Panorama software moves and twists images around and often distorts the final images in interesting ways.
I’ll go with that! Still, perplexing is vexing.
If your phone is doing the overlap, you have no control. When I do panoramas, I normally do a series of 3 photos with the camera turned to portrait, overlapped about 10%. Then stitch them together in Camera Raw. The three photos stitched together come out close to the same aspect ratio as a single image oriented in landscape. The panorama function in Camera Raw gives me limited ability to adjust distortion. If I do 2 photos in portrait, the panorama will be square. Or I can do any number of overlapping images, depending on the zoom of the lens. When I use a 17mm super wide-angle lens, I can do 12 overlapping photos to get a 360º panorama. Then I process those photos in a software that creates a virtual tour, like you are standing at the center of a place and the image turns around you. You can see examples of some of my 360º virtual tours at: http://www.ocnevirtualtours.com/.
That was very neat! Amazing, actually. I’ve a way to go.
I took a few more tours today. That is so very impressive!!! Amazing, Timothy!
Thanks, Resa. If there is an area where you have murals surrounding you on three or four sides, stand as close to a center point as you can, start what would be 12 o’clock with your phone in portrait orientation, and take a photo. Keep your phone at the same position, but turn you body to 1 o’clock, take another photo, and continue turning your body on the same spot taking a photo at 2, 3, 4, 5 o’clock… all the way through a complete turn (like a pirouette) back to 12 o’clock. You should have 11 to 13 overlapping photos when you are done. Send me the photos, and if I can stitch them into a 360º panorama, I’ll make you a virtual tour of the murals. I think a virtual tour of murals would be super cool.

Thanks, Gi!!! ❤
This is wonderful, Sorceress!
I love the egg itself and the reflections on the car take it to a whole nother level.
Thank you, Thunder! The reflections are always fun. I’m sure the egg will get another paint job soon enough. Tres egg! 😀
Eggs are amazing!!
The egg is a symbol of fertility, of life. They are beautiful!!
Thank you for your visit!
That egg is done with perfection. … and you captured it well. Thanks for introducing me to the Egg Dance. 😉
A fun egg, all in all! 😀
The Egg Dance is very cool!!
So wonderful! What efforts bringing all the details onto the egg shape. Thank you for sharing Resa! Best wishes, Michael
This was a fun one, Michael! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!!! _Resa
Interesting photos as usual.
It’s a superb art piece in its own right, but when seen in the reflections of the car it takes on a higher state. Bravo on those pics! :)x
I love the reflections, too! Thank you. Much street art and many murals is in parking lots and alleys. At first I saw this as a problem. Then I saw it as opportunity! 😀 x
Love the creativty and art here. They showed make more and post them around the city.
Hope you are well Beautiful.
It would be great to have art eggs all over the city. We had art moose all over the city about a decade ago. They were vandalized like you can’t believe, stolen even. Only a couple remain intact.
I am well, thank you, Lonely. Hope you are, too!
NYC had painted cow art a couple of years back. Cities sould do more things like this.
All is good.
Art, in all its forms is soul food. Glad to hear you are good!
The title is awesome! and the creativity and art is magnificently inspiring.
Beautiful photography of yours as always, Resa.
Hope your well my friend. I’ll be replying to your email. 🙂
Best to wait for ….. the art.
🙂 Art is the healing energy the world needs right now. 🙂
The paintings on the eggs are interesting
Yes, they are.

Great photographs, Resa! xx
Cars always park in front of great art. Total disregard!. 🙂
LOL!!! True though.
Wholesome egg art!
It’s quite unique, which increases my liking of it.
